A reader reports:

“New dog store on Georgia Ave. Right next to Small Fry. Also, my dog who will be a frequent visitor.”


District Dogs website says:

“Founded in 2013, District Dogs is a leading pet care company in Washington, DC. We specialize in mid-day walks, daycare, and boarding. District Dogs is 100% licensed, bonded and insured. You can feel comfortable your pets are in trusted hands.

District Dogs Daycare provides an enjoyable and fun experience for your dog. Dogs will enjoy friendly playtime with their canine pals, including occasional cool down sessions. All dogs are supervised as we reinforce basic training and good manners.

The facility is conditioned with a HEPA air filtration system and sanitized nightly with a commercial floor washing system. All dogs are given the opportunity to potty outside and any messes inside are cleaned and sanitized right away.

We offer two size play rooms for small and large dogs. Senior dogs that need a more relaxed environment may join their small dog companions. We also have a private feeding room if your dog requires lunch during his or her stay.”

    No one has commented yet on the symbolism of a shady liquor store becoming a doggie daycare place?

    • stacksp

      What symbolism is that?

      • and good jobs, I hope

        I don’t get the symbolism either, but this is clearly an example of gentrification.

        • textdoc

          Yep — that was my thought (that it was a striking symbol of gentrification).

          • stacksp

            Yeah. Figured that is where you were going. Out with the liquor stores, fast food carryouts and corner stores and in with doggie daycares, cycling shops, yoga and workout studios.

            +1. I used to live near this block years ago. Between the condos, bars, and now the end of the liquor store/opening of a doggy daycare, it is basically unrecognizable.

      After the liquor store, you need some hair of the dog?

      • Lidia

        hahahaha good one. Thank you.

      Once upon a time, Petworth Liquors was in Petworth. They were displaced by the metro construction. It wasn’t a bad place. Then it moved to Park View, and I think it changed hands.

    I thought this was going to be a hot dog joint. Oh well.

    • LittleBluePenguin

      So did I! I was wondering if it would fare ok positioned right next to small fry! Ha!

    • textdoc

      Where was the scuttlebutt about a possible hot-dog joint?
      I suppose the place could still cater to wiener dogs… along with other small dogs in its small-dog room. ;)

  • say what

    petworth liquor was a shit hole. I don;t know anyone who thought otherwise. I won’t miss the guys hanging out front, smoking weed, usually drunk already. Good riddance.

    • textdoc

      Agreed — my understanding was that Petworth Liquors was a pretty bad neighbor — there was significant neighborhood objection when it tried to move across the street.

    Look forward to welcoming them to the neighborhood! Fingers crossed they can do a cute mural on the side of the building :)

    Does Small Fry do well? I hope so! I’ve had a few really good lunches there but it never seems very crowded

  • Jess

    That is the cutest dog I’ve ever seen!

    • Becca

      It’s just WILD how cute she is!

  • sg7

    District Dogs is fantastic! So glad they’re expanding and coming to my neighborhood.

    I walked by this morning. Signage is up and there was a person working inside. Seems to be open!
